Psalm 98-99English Standard Version (ESV)

Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord

A Psalm.

98 Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
    for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm
    have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made known his salvation;
    he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
    to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
    break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
    with the lyre and the sound of melody!
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
    make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
    the world and those who dwell in it!
Let the rivers clap their hands;
    let the hills sing for joy together
before the Lord, for he comes
    to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
    and the peoples with equity.

The Lord Our God Is Holy

99 The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble!
    He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
The Lord is great in Zion;
    he is exalted over all the peoples.
Let them praise your great and awesome name!
    Holy is he!
The King in his might loves justice.[a]
    You have established equity;
you have executed justice
    and righteousness in Jacob.
Exalt the Lord our God;
    worship at his footstool!
    Holy is he!

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
    Samuel also was among those who called upon his name.
    They called to the Lord, and he answered them.
In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them;
    they kept his testimonies
    and the statute that he gave them.

O Lord our God, you answered them;
    you were a forgiving God to them,
    but an avenger of their wrongdoings.
Exalt the Lord our God,
    and worship at his holy mountain;
    for the Lord our God is holy!

Psalm 98

A psalm.

Sing to the Lord a new song,
    for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm
    have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has made his salvation known
    and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
He has remembered his love
    and his faithfulness to Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation of our God.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth,
    burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the Lord with the harp,
    with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn
    shout for joy before the Lord, the King.

Let the sea resound, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it.
Let the rivers clap their hands,
    let the mountains sing together for joy;
let them sing before the Lord,
    for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness
    and the peoples with equity.

Psalm 99

The Lord reigns,

he sits enthroned between the cherubim,
    let the earth shake.
Great is the Lord in Zion;
    he is exalted over all the nations.
Let them praise your great and awesome name
    he is holy.

The King is mighty, he loves justice
    you have established equity;
in Jacob you have done
    what is just and right.
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his footstool;
    he is holy.

Moses and Aaron were among his priests,

they called on the Lord
    and he answered them.

Lord our God,
    you answered them;
you were to Israel a forgiving God,
    though you punished their misdeeds.[a]
Exalt the Lord our God
    and worship at his holy mountain,
    for the Lord our God is holy.

Psalm 98-99The Voice (VOICE)

Psalm 98

A song.

Compose a new song, and sing it to the Eternal
    because of the unbelievable things He has done;
He has won the victory
    with the skill of His right hand and strength of His holy arm.
The Eternal has made it clear that He saves,
    and He has shown the nations that He does what is right.
He has been true to His promises;
    fresh in His mind is His unfailing love
    for all of Israel.
Even the ends of the earth have witnessed how our God saves.

This hymn invites all the people on earth and creation itself to join in singing a new song of “beautiful noise” celebrating God’s justice and victories.

Raise your voices; make a beautiful noise to the Eternal, all the earth.
    Let your joy explode into song and praise;
Make music to the Eternal with the harp;
    sing a beautiful melody with the harp and chorus.
With trumpets and horns,
    fill the air with joyful sounds to the King, the Eternal.

Let the sea rumble and roar, and all the creatures it holds shout praise;
    let the whole world and all those who live in it join the celebration.
Let the rivers applaud
    and the mountains join in joyful song
In the presence of the Eternal because He is coming
    to judge the earth.
He is coming,
    and His judgment will be what is right for the world
    and just to all people.

Psalm 99

The Eternal is the king ruling over all;
    let all people shake in fear.
    He sits on His throne, settled between winged guardians;[a]
    let the planet tremble.
The Eternal is great in the hearts of His people;
    He has made Zion His sacred mountain,
    and He reigns majestic over all people.
Let them express praise and gratitude to Your amazing and awesome name—
    because He is holy, perfect and exalted in His power.
The King who rules with strength also treasures justice.
    You created order and established what is right.
You have carried out justice
    and done what is right to the people of Jacob.
Lift up the Eternal our God in your heart;
    bow down to the earth where He rests His feet.
    He is holy, perfect and exalted in His power.

Moses and Aaron were two of His priests;
    Samuel was among those who called out to Him.
    They asked the Eternal for help, and He answered them.
He answered them from a column of cloud;
    they heeded His testimonies
    and lived by the laws He gave them.

You answered them, Eternal our God;
    You were, to them, a God who forgives,
    yet You did not ignore what they did wrong
    and punished them fairly as well.
Lift up the Eternal our God in your hearts,
    and celebrate His goodness at His holy mountain,
    for the Eternal our God is holy, perfect and exalted in His power.
